After playing it for a couple hours, I was hooked. Great puzzles, great fighting sequences, and great story. Add to the fact that doublefine made it (psychonauts, another great game), and you got yourself a classic in the making.
Costume Quest is a RPG/adventure game that tells the story of a group of children who go to look for the missing sibling of one of the kids (you can choose to play the brother or the sister at the beginning of the game), who was kidnapped by monsters, on Halloween night. Perfectly mirroring a child's imagination, the children encounter monsters along the way (as well as some very helpful folks as well), with whom they do battle using the powers of their Halloween costumes. Many costumes are acquired along the way, each one with it's own unique fighting style and special ability. The children can also purchase power ups (candy serves as the currency in this game) hunt for collectibles, and can participate in various mini games and side quests along the way. The settings of the game mirror many faces of suburbia, such as neighborhood streets, backyards, playgrounds, and shopping malls, each given its own spooky Halloween-themed twist.
Costume Quest is a very accessible game. The turn-based battle sequences are never particularly difficult, and the game's campaign isn't particularly lengthy.Read more ›
It's Halloween and you and your twin are about to go trick-or-treating. Depending on whether you choose Reynold or Wren is really more a visual choice (hooray for gender options!) since the story will more or less play out the same way. Your character will dress up in a homemade robot costume while your sibling will dress up as candy corn. And because of this, your sibling will eventually get kidnapped by a monster who is looting the town for candy. And now it becomes up to you to rescue your sibling and stop the monster plot.
The exploration part of the game basically has you going around town collecting bits of candy. Candy is the game's currency, which you use to purchase items like Battle Stamps that help your characters in combat. You can find candy on the ground or you can bop a mailbox or some other part of the environment and hope some candy falls out or you can go trick-or-treating. And typically you need to visit all houses in an area before you can proceed. You also need to hunt down materials that you can use to create new costumes that will open up new opportunities for your characters.
The other part of the game is the actual combat, which happens any time you encounter one of the monsters either walking around or hiding in one of the trick-or-treat places you try your luck with. Then things shift to a turn-based environment where you're all larger than life versions of your characters facing equally large monsters. Thus your little cardboard robot costume turns into a full anime-worthy mecha-style suit complete with a higher attack that rains missiles down on your enemies.Read more ›
What to say? This game is definitely a classic. You play as either the brother or the sister trying to save the other, who is kidnapped by monsters on Halloween as they try to invade this world. You use the power of various costumes along with the powers of friends you meet and have join your party as you progress along to the end. You also collect candy (money) and complete various quests for various people along the way.
It's arguably the cutest RPG out there and also happens to be a lot of fun. Although Double Fine has somewhat fallen from grace of late, this game remains a shining example of the sort of excellent games they are capable of producing. Definitely a game that shouldn't be missed or passed over by anybody. Make sure you play this on Halloween, and at least turn it on Christmas Day for a few minutes (you will know why if you do it).
A classic, one of the best games out there, and an easy 10/10.

The game overall _can_ become monotonous a bit, but I think the quirkiness and story make up for it. As a $15 regular price game, you can't expect any revolutionary. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
